Rob Larkin, the Mayor's hatchet man at Allen Norton and Blue sent me the letter below. In it he tries to state how the Fountain action sharing her threats and accusations against Airport Director Dan Flynn with a non-City employee contractor is sooooo different from Reynold's sharing employee complaints with me.
By addressing me directly and my facts, it shows that the punch landed. Otherwise why not just blow me off. Larkin may have thought the "slam dunk" could go off the rim in court.
Well, once I received the Larkin threat, I, of course, backed down and went and cowered in the corner.
I responded as follows:
- The FY 2015 Budget includes the City of Pensacola Functional Organizational Chart which very clearly reflects that the Pensacola International Airport reports directly to the City Administrator (not the Chief Operations Officer).
- Ms. Fountain's own profile on the City of Pensacola website, which by the way is under her control, states she is an "advisor" to the Mayor and key management staff. It also states she has responsibility for the City's Human Resources and Technology Resources, which again is not what was submitted to Council with the 2015 Budget which states these functions report directly to the City Administrator.
- The Airport website, which you state Ms. Fountain is responsible for and has direct supervision of, states specifically that the Airport Director reports to the City Administrator.
Once Larkin found himself in a hole, he quit digging unlike the Mayor.
Then the City Airport site was changed and the org chart changed to note what Larkin had claimed.
